Veyu, a local 5 piece post punk act have been kicking up a storm around Liverpool with a unique and cerebrally visceral sound.

Likened to The Wildbeasts, with a hint of defiant vitality, the band successfully imprinted themselves on the Liverpool live scene last Friday with a highly polished performance in The Blade Factory.

Pegged as the Liverpool music discovery of 2013, the band have reportedly been working tirelessly behind the scenes to deliver a succession of faultless live performances.

Using catchy riffs the young band pack a real punch. The songwriters apply their own innate sound to so many unwitting genres of music, from US college rock to billowing folk.

The band were recently featured by Dave Monks on his BBC Introducing show and they are currently promoting their debut record Shadow of Heaven.

Definitely the one live act to see in Liverpool this year, the band will mesmerise audiences with their lead single Running, which is the epitome of a perfectly flowing synth pop track.

Make sure you catch Veyu, along with Purple Revolver favorite Natalie McCool, at Leaf on Bold street this Saturday at the GIT Awards launch party.
